BCCF and the Environment
Quarrying activities are often more challenging to manage from an environmental perspective than other manufacturing industies and calcium carbonate producers accept their operations can potentially impact upon the environment in a number of ways.

However, many operators have made substantial investments in environmental protection to reduce the impact of their activities and some are making the most of the potential to contribute positively in areas such as land restoration and biodiversity.
Sustainable development, quality restoration and aftercare of industry operations and being sensitive to local requirements are an essential part of the responsible approach expected from BCCF members.
